As kids we are taught to treat people the way we want to be treated–the golden rule. If you were a teenager or young adult, how would you want to be treated? With respect? Yes. With loving care? Most definitely!
The reason why these two stick out the most to me is because I benefited greatly from individuals who I respected and treated me with respect and loving care.
Studies show that young people fall for the social ills like drugs, promiscuity, and other damaging behaviors because they’re desperately yearning for respect and to feel cared for.
